FTP to SuSE 9.0 LiveEval (Booted)
Posted 15 September 2004 - 05:41 PM
SuSE 9.0 LiveEval (bootable linux). I am begining
to think I should just as well go out an pick four
leaf clovers! Here is what I have done thus far...
I INSTALLED AN FTP DAEMON...
> cd /tmp
> rpm -i -vv -force -root /windows/c/temp vsftpd-1.2.0-52.i586.rpm
> cd /usr
> mv local local.orig
> ln -s local /windows/c/temp
> mv sbin /windows/c/temp
> cd /var/log
> touch vsftpd.log
> chmod 777 !$
> cd /etc
> vi vsftpd.conf
----(also tried /tmp)
> cd /usr/local
> vsftpd &
SEND THE FTP
> ftp -a
FTP> open HOST0
...I get the banner I set in the vsftpd.conf
FTP> verbose on
FTP> cd /tmp
...Failed to change diretory
FTP> cd /windows
...Failed to change directory
FTP> put random.dat
...Could not create file
What gives? Is this even possible?
Please enlighten me to the tao of

Found that I had to do the following to get
FTP to work:
1. vi /etc/passwd
insure that user "ftp" had a home directory
that was in writable user space, say /home/ftp.
2. In the /home/ftp directory, made a subdir
called "incoming" (can't do a root ftp put
in the FTP home, anonymously).
3. chmod/chown such that....
drwxr-xr-x ftp root incoming
4. QED, huh! Works now...finally.
